Abstract

In this paper, the problem of a semi-infinite accreting medium moving with a constant velocity is studied. The heat generation in the medium begins at a constant rate and continues indefinitely. Using the modified heat conduction theory, temperature distribution was determined and the associated thermoelastic problem was solved with Laplace transform technique. The results are evaluated numerically and presented graphically.
